A fan recently asked Corey Taylor if Slipknot would ever consider bringing back former vocalist/percussionist Anders Colsefni as a replacement for Chris Fehn and he responded by saying “Fuck I Would LOVE that.” However, Colsefni has since commented on the situation saying he has no interest in rejoining the band.
Here’s Colsefni’s statement:
“Hello fellow Earthlings!
I’m going to take away the uncomfortable conversations that Slipknot might have regarding myself and reported band vacancy by saying: I will NOT be rejoining Slipknot.
It is certainly not for any animosity I have-I simply don’t know those guys anymore. I generally give those I don’t know the benefit of the doubt.I’ve spent the last 27 years (through each and every band) working concrete construction to support my family but still allow time for my “Real Job” lol.
After many years of failed bands, failed marriages, and plenty of others, I’ve settled into an occupation that I can retire from. I’m gonna need the bennies-my body is going to shit! Lol!
As much as I had dreamed of rejoining my creation (shut up- I know it’s a different band now!) it is not enough of a dream anymore to risk being homeless when the tour is over!
That being said, Painface is still working behind the scenes. Look for us sometime this year!”
